6.1.1: Server Buffer Format

You can change the look of the server buffer lines by changing the gnus-server-line-format variable. This is a format-like variable, with some simple extensions:


How the news is fetched---the backend name.


The name of this server.


Where the news is to be fetched from---the address.


The opened/closed/denied status of the server.

The mode line can also be customized by using the gnus-server-mode-line-format variable (see Mode Line Formatting). The following specs are understood:


Server name.


Server method.
